Sony NGP price - 'It won't be $599'

SCE worldwide studios president comments on PSP2's potential cost

Sony's NGP will cost somewhere between "affordable" and $599, according to PlayStation execs.

The latest SCE honcho to comment on the handheld's potential price point is Shu Yoshida, president of worldwide studios.


"From the very beginning of the project - since 2008 - pricing was one of the considerations that we had," he told Game Informer.

"Hopefully when we announce the price, people will see the proper value," he added. "It's not going to be $599."

Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter told us earlier today that he believes PSP2 could sell for $250/£200, while Lazard Capital Markets' Colin Sebastian is anticipating a $299 "or higher" price point.
